Sub Task Remaining inheritance

hello guys


I had done some changes in "Sub-Task" issues based on my needs:

1) when you are creating the Sub-Task you have to set original estimate in it

2) I have set a automation rule that creator of a task became its assignee (reporter = assignee)


In the current configuration :

remaining estimate Main Task = original estimate Main Task + SUM(original estimate Sub-Task)


But I think this is wrong and I want below equation

remaining estimate Main Task =  SUM(original estimate Sub-Task)


and of course I want that the original estimate of Sub-Task to be Permanent


thanks alot

If memory serves and nothing has changed, indeed the math is task + sum of sub-task. This cannot be changed. My process when using sub task is to not estimate the task itself. The task becomes a container for all of its subtasks.
